Man Utd would be hard to turn down, admits Blind
Ajax utility player Daley Blind has admitted that a move to Manchester United this summer would be difficult for him to turn down, the London Evening Standard has reported.
The Dutchman has been heavily linked with a reunion with former national team boss Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford over recent weeks, and has recently been made to train away from his teammates, suggesting that a move may not be far away. However, the player insists there has been no formal approach.
Barcelona are also said to be in the running, and Blind admits he would have to seriously consider joining either club should he be provided with the chance. He said: "Of course, it's flattering when you're linked with clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona. It would be very hard to turn down these kind of clubs. But there's no serious interest as of yet.
"There are plenty of players who promise to stay and then leave after all. I am keeping my options open. I am very happy in Amsterdam and at Ajax, but you never know what could happen."
He also went on to suggest that a move to Spain would suit his style of play as opposed to the more physical nature of the Premier League. Blind helped Ajax win the Eredivisie title last season.
